Norwegian singer Annie has only released a couple of albums, and neither was even that successful outside her home country, but somehow she established herself as one of the best pop singers of the 2000s.
Her biggest hits were Chewing Gum and Heartbeat from her debut album Anniemal.
Where to start
Start with Anniemal (2004) and get to know her when she was just starting out.
What to buy
Second album Don’t Stop (2009) is nearly as good as the first, but inexplicably doesn’t include the one-off Anthonio from the same year. Track down both.
Don’t bother with
Do bother with both albums and a few other odd bits. There isn’t anything particular you need to avoid.
Definitely track down Anthonio if you haven’t already, and Back Together from 2013’s A&R EP is brilliant too.
